MGMT Kids Ukulele Tutorial

September 22, 2014

Thank you to Todd for another great ukulele tutorial on the MGMT Kids ukulele chords. He starts the ukulele tutorial by playing a bit of the song, including the ukulele finger picking. To play along with the original recording you do need a capo on the second fret, which is part of this ukulele lesson. He starts with the chords and then goes into the riff. I agree with his comments that this a cool way to play Kids on the uke! Happy strumming!

August 28, 2014

This ukulele tutorial will teach you how to play the Beatles song Yesterday using ukulele chords. This version is in the key of F.

So get busy practicing, because there are actually four parts to this ukulele tutorial. The first part of the ukulele tutorial teaches you the verse step by step where you actually start strumming upwards. Happy strumming!
